the average person eats about 5 lbs with corn and potatoes. the going price now is 3.99 a lb here in the houston area. i did just get a text for for 2.99 for wednesday and thursday only this week. the cold weather has really affected this year's crop, keeping them down in the mud longer. other things to try if you are low carbing it are brussel sprouts, artichoke hearts, and at the very end throw some asparagus and leave them in for just a few minutes. i haven't had any yet this year because once i start i cannot stop. i have no idea about the dallas area, sorry.
